Juan Oliphant is a multi-talented photographer and ocean diver based in Haleiwa, Hawaii, United States. Juan focuses mainly on the ocean and underwater photography. He is also co-owner of One Ocean Diving and co-founder of Water Inspired Conservation Group. On his home page, he explains: "Photography is a tool, its the way I can speak up for them, a photo is worth more than a thousand words in every language, I try to capture as much feeling and evoke as much emotion as I try to evoke people to ask questions. I want to capture and share moments that start a conversation about the animals and the connection and relationship we have with them. I use my time, talents, and work around the world to help change people's fear of sharks into fascination and respect. I hope my images inspire you to take another look, questions perceptions, and join me to be the change to help save sharks and the ocean." For more, check out his beautiful instagram page.
